Our Blooming Youth, Episode 11 aired last night in South Korea and, with the official ratings out from Nielsen Korea earlier today, it appears the tvN historical drama is easily holding its own with Korean audiences.
According to Nielsen, Our Blooming Youth, Episode 11 ratings show almost 3.6 percent of the viewing audience nationwide watched the drama, with a higher 4 percent in Seoul.
Those numbers put it in first place in its time slot for both demographics.
In relation to the drama’s previous episodes, Our Blooming Youth, Episode 11 ratings also seem to show the Park Hyung Sik and Jeon So Nee-led series has been pretty successful in maintaining its audience throughout the first 11 episodes of the 20-episode drama.
The drama premiered on February 6th in first place in its time slot, and with a 4.2 percent audience share nationwide in Korea.
Since then, it’s next 10 episodes have almost all only lost an average of half a percentage point, with some episodes not even losing that.
In every instance, except for Episode 6 in second place, each episode of Our Blooming Youth has also been in first place in its time slot.
With Our Blooming Youth, Episode 11 ratings continuing to show the drama holding steady with a consistent number of viewers, and with the show over halfway through, it is (hopefully) likely it will continue to do so through its end.
Remember too, Our Blooming Youth airs on tvN, a pay-to-watch channel, so a drama like this will never get the massive audience numbers shows airing on public TV channels get.
